The Independent Culture

Mary Horowitz's obsession for her job of compiling crosswords has left her little time to go on dates, leaving her pretty socially inept when she meets handsome Steve.

What started as a blind date turns to stalking as she follows the news cameraman from story to story. Before winning the Best Actress Oscar for The Blind Side, Sandra Bullock sportingly turned up to accept the Razzie for Worst Actress for this car crash, and boy, was it merited. Bullock's Mary is one of the most grating celluloid creations of recent years and the script is full of mawkish, homespun wisdom about being yourself, even if you're a stalker, veering from implausible to plain irritating.
